On the courtyard of the Museum der Arbeit stands the T.R.U.D.E., the boring head of the Elbtunnel drill, which drilled the 4th Elbtunnel tube. It has an impressive 14.2 meters in diameter, weighs 380 tons and was in use from October 1997 to March 2000.
In Barmbek-Nord, everything is built in red brick, in parts really pretty and in a variety of reds and patterns, so that no uniformity arises.
Behind the former Margarine Factory Voss, where now Techniker Krankenkasse is is a small garden club.
The Bürgerhaus Barmbek has columns and railings which are completely covered with knitted patterns.
South of the Asklepios Kliniken and west of the Wasserturm Palais is a really nice residential area, extremely quiet with classical, listed buildings. But if you want to live there, you have to dig deep into your pocket (5 rooms, 2 bathrooms, 160m² for about 2,500 € per month).
